Juicing vs. blending Fruits and Vegetables
I saw an interesting article about starvation in which it was stated that there are 2 different kinds of starvation. One, of course, is a result of eating either not enough or no food. But there is another type of starvation caused by serious malnutrition, and even though the United States is the most obese country on the planet, our bodies are starved of important nutrients and enzymes. It’s partly why we’re so fat, because we keep eating and eating, but we’re eating highly processed, cooked foods that have the essential components burned out of them. Cooking your food removes up to 80% of food’s important amino acids, fibers and vitamins.
It’s one reason why changing to a raw foods diet makes sense. When you eat raw foods, you’re suddenly getting all the nutrition from food that nature intended you to get. It’s the way we were meant to eat, in balance with the planet.
We suddenly become the vibrant, healthy people we’re supposed to be.
But we live in the modern world, with all its pressures & time constraints. This is a good reason why getting your whole foods from juicing is a good idea. You can still get all the fiber you need without taking the time to cut, peel or slice the food. Raw foods do take a little more time to chew and swallow and that’s a good thing. But if you don’t have the time for that, then you should consider using juices for at least a portion of your raw foods intake.
You do need to invest in a good juicer though, and that’s different from a blender. A blender can’t process the fruit peels that contain most a fruit or vegetables vitamins and enzymes. A juicer is a more high-powered appliance that will process everything – seeds and stems, peels and pulp. It’s designed to do it quickly and efficiently. They can be expensive, but there are many more options today than there used to be as this concept has gained in popularity.
